Sompo Canopius strengthens trade credit offering PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 07 June 2017
Sompo Canopius AG (“Sompo Canopius”) today announces that Will Clark has joined the group to head a new Trade Credit Insurance team.

Clark, a prominent figure in the trade credit insurance industry with over thirty years' experience in banking and trade credit insurance, has joined from AIG and is reporting to Bernie de Haldevang, Global Head of Specialty. Complementing Sompo Canopius's existing portfolio, he will be focusing on establishing a new book of excess of loss short term trade credit business, forming part of a global market of some $9bn of trade credit insurance premium.

Continuing its overall strategy of diversifying its business, Sompo Canopius has been targeting areas where it believes there is room to expand profitably and where it can offer additional value and variety of coverage to brokers and clients. The group has made four more hires for the Trade Credit Insurance team – Yvonne McCormack, Scott Morrison, Claire Davenport and Daina Muceniece, who bring with them over 60 years’ combined experience in trade credit and trade finance - and will be further adding to its Credit & Political Risk team as well.

Bernie de Haldevang explained: “We have expansion plans for our specialty lines and establishing an experienced team with someone of Will's calibre as its leader is both a significant commitment and a noteworthy step. With only a few people writing this kind of trade credit business in London in a meaningful way, we believe that our offering will be immensely valuable to new and existing clients, providing sophisticated insurance buyers a tailored and high service level approach and giving them the backing and certainty that they need in difficult global market conditions.”
